I Need Your Help
I decided that his reasoning was sound and that he was right. On a cold February morning another little baby blog was born in the ghetto. The mission of my blog is “Teaching People How to Live.” The vision of my blog is Colossians 1:28-29 which reads,
"Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me." (Colossians 1:28-29, ESV)
This is what I have given by life to and what I have dedicated to this blog. I hope that in the end God will give me at least 100 faithful followers who will click on this site almost everyday. I want to teach His word as it was written by each of the original authors with the meaning intended by each author and with the meaning understood by the original readers.
I do not think this to be egotistical nor unattainable. Jesus said on many occasions, “He that has ears to hear, let him hear.” I know that this will never replace, nor is it intended, sound, faithful, accurate bible teaching of your pastor. I merely want to supplement that teaching due to so much of the false teaching on the television, radio, and in print.
My original plan was to expose my “followers” (I am looking for a better term, anyone have a suggestion?) to sound exegetical bible teaching, solid biblically based books, Godly and biblical bible teachers and preachers.
Here is what I am proposing for the month of May and June as a test drive:
Monday - will be set aside as a reflection on the past Lord’s Day.
Tuesday - will be set aside to review books that would benefit your Christian life. Some of these books will have been around for quite some time and you might have already read them, some will be new; hopefully the review will benefit you and cause you to purchase and read the book.
Wednesday - will be a new exegetical and expositional study in the First Epistle (letter) of John the Apostle. We will look at this little yet powerful letter verse by verse each Wednesday.
Thursday – will be set aside to reflect on, critique, review, and “dis” or otherwise contemplate events, people, ideas, and “theologies” in the news both past and present.
Friday – I would like to try something new on this day. This is why I am going to try this format for May and June and see how it works out. If there is good response, a “following” (still looking for that better term) and comments (positive or negative, in agreement or disagreement I will continue. Here is my idea:
I would love to have questions submitted about various topics, doctrine, biblical passages, life issues that we can answer together from the Scriptures.
Saturday – unsure at this time
Sunday – set aside for the segment called Sunday Sound Bites.
What do you think? I am interested in your input and comments. Please be specific in commenting. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
